    Didn't measure BP but I did have head weight posted in an earlier post. Definitely not as stiff. It's a bit close though.

    I can see this being too slow for me as a 3U, to be honest, and I consider the odd jarring sensation a small price to pay for the feel+stability combo.

    I thought of Paul immediately - he really doesn't like vibration and he'll get the 3U, so his review will answer that question.

    BP is, I think, in the mid-290's, and I have it level with the JS10 for stiffness. The HX900 could well play less stiff than the JS10 because it's a bit taller.

    @Mark A how would you compare it to a TK9000 - that's what I've got atm. Curious about this though.
    Cheers

    I used to put one on my Meteor, but the default top one on that pattern was dangerously low.

    I'm also interested in comparison between HX900 and HX800 C or P and Jetspeed 12.
    Waiting for your review :)

    This is a very stiff feeling racket. So far I've loved the feeling on the stringbed with so much accuracy from little effort. I think it has the best, solid feeling out of all the Victor frames and as Mark mentioned a fair amount of vibration - which I'll reduce with GR50 very
    soon.

    It's stiffer than both Jetspeeds and yet still quick. It is slightly more head heavy compared to JS12 and 10.

    I have the 3U version. Not sure how a 4U feels but this racket is plenty fast enough. Not sure I'd like the 4U version as much.
